This book was better than the first book, in my opinion. Maybe because the dynamic between the heroine and her father is so similar to mine. What happened between them in the end brought me to tears.

I also enjoyed so much the relationship between the main characters. It was refreshing not to have so much turmoil between two people you want together. I hope I haven't said too much there.

I love the narrator's voice; the only thing that is a drawback is that she doesn't differentiate voices enough and you have to use context to figure out who is talking at the moment. But her voice is soothing and matches the tone of the book very well.

Overall, this book was an awesome "read!"

Nadia and Sawyer are total opposites. The billionaire playboy is an irresponsible womanizer. She's a serious, pragmatic sort, with her eyes firmly on achieving her dream of winning the America's Cup. As the skipper of his yacht, she should refuse his outrageous suggestion to pose as his girlfriend during a visit to his family, but the money he offers means reaching her goals faster. She expects his family to hate her and disapprove of his choice, but they're warm and welcoming.

The story was good and that was the only thing that kept me listening to the horrible narrator's voice. Not only did every character sound the same, making it hard to distinguish between who was talking unless there was a 'he said' or 'she said' there to help you, but she also mispronounced some words! If I stopped the book and came back after a while, I would physically cringe when the narrator's voice started up again.

Up until almost the end, I thought I had the story figured out and was a bit disappointed by how predictable I thought it was. But the twist of the story really spun my head in a pleasantly surprising way.
